Raised $24M for 4 companies, sold 3 of them, and have coached dozens of founders through business strategy and raise fundraising.
If you want to raise a Seed or Series A round of capital for your startup, I have developed a program that WORKS if you put in the work, regardless your background or where you live.
Investors have a huge advantage over Entrepreneurs because they see 300 deals per month, they have the network and they know how to play the game. So many great founders never raise money because they fail at fundraising.
I'll walk you through key fundraising steps:
- Refining your pitch and vision
- Developing the pipeline of investors
- Gathering introductions
- Timing of the intros
- Answering typical investor questions
- How to close the deal quickly
If you have a company that's growing and you want to raise money, reach out, let's see if we're a fit.
What will the call be like?
I will read anything you send me before the call to prepare. I'll take the conversation wherever you want, and I find it works best if you come with a list of questions and clearly tell me your goals. I'll listen first and answer very succinctly. I try to give give you the most possible value in the shortest time.
I like taking calls on Clarity first because I genuinely enjoy helping people if I can. Second, because I get compensated for my effort.
